    My friend has asked me to hers for lunch this week. She has told me she will be making a creamy pasta bake.

    How do I even beginning guesstimating how many points to allow for that? In the old days I would have a rough idea, but propoints are still so new to me. I don't want to bugger it up on my first week.

    I am looking forward to it though :D

    Any idea what she puts in it? If you have a rough idea on old points just double it. Seems to come somewhere close normally. Or could you ask? Or look up a point value for a creamy pasta bake on asda.com and watch your portions x enjoy x

    I could just ask in passing what she's put in it I guess, and try to work it out roughly and add a bit extra on just in case - I don't like to ask exactly for details because I always feel like I might offend the cook lol.

    I did reply to her message saying I'd save some points especially, so she knows I've started WW.

    I will watch my portion size though and I'll be treating it as my main meal of the day, so I'll have something lighter and lower points in the evening.

    I haven't signed up to MP yet, so I've not got it. But I will be signing up at my next meeting so I might ask her for the recipe afterwards (like I said, I don't like to before) and do a retrospective check on Saturday and hope I didn't blow the budget.

    Thank you guys :)

    I just found a recipe on BBC Good Food - a serving of that one works out at 19pp. So I reckon I'll work on the basis of that and fit my other meals round it. I have plenty of weekly points left over if I need them anyway.
